Town of Oxford

101 Market Street

A charming, tree-lined and waterbound village with a population of 726, Oxford, which was once Maryland's largest port, is still important in boat building and yachting. It is a protected harbor for watermen who harvest oysters, crabs, clams, and fish, and for sailors from all over the bay.

Oxford today is still a waterman's town, but is enjoying a new resurgence based on tourism and leisure activities. Its quiet charm, fresh air, summer breezes, and clean water provide a haven from the hustle and bustle of city life for boaters, weekend visitors, and summer residents.
